    Default This is getting ridiculous...

    I just saw 5 different spam posts from 5 different new members as their first post. I think that the member screening process might need some changes.

    My guess is they are exploiting weaknesses in the forum software and bypassing the regular sign up process. This older V-bulletin forum software has a lot of vulnerabilities and is not widely used anymore for that reason. I suspect an upgrade may be needed sooner than later before things get worse.

    Hi, yes I am getting these as well as replies to threads, mainly my "new guy from switzerland" thread and I have noticed the new members first posts as well. Also while I am here, I contributed to the site earlier this year and I never got recognition that I had, I sent numerous emails but never got a reply, poor show chaps!
    Cheers
